    Default Google Chrome Library Extension

    If you aren't opposed to using Google Chrome as your web browser, they have a neat feature called Library Extension. It allows you to see directly on book-related pages (Amazon, Goodreads, AR Book Find, etc.) whether or not your local library has the book available for checkout.

    Be in Google Chrome and go to

    Click "Install on Chrome" to install on Chrome When I installed it, my local public library was not listed. I wrote them (link also on that main page ("Just let us know!")) and in about 2 weeks I received a direct email stating they'd set it up and to please test it for them.

    After the extension has been installed, you'll see a little stack of books on the upper right corner of the Chrome page.

    In Amazon, for example, once you search a book, and then select the book that matches, it will go to the screen with purchase options on the right hand side. My extension shows up directly above the shopping cart - it tells me how many copies are available of the hard copy as well as if any e-books are available. It links directly to your library's website and you can check the book out instantly!

    This sounds great, thanks, I had not heard of it. They even do libraries in NZ. Did not have ours on there, but I have put in a request for it.
